I would like to thank the author for his interest in our case report. [1] I would like to reply on the author's comments:

  1. We have already classified our case as a non-ischemic central retinal vein occlusion in a previous reply. [2]
  2. In this case, we applied a focal scatter of macular argon laser which is not typically by definition a "macular grid". This is the reason we described it as focal laser treatment.
  3. In our case, argon laser treatment resulted in complete resolution of macular oedema. This complete resolution of macular oedema resulted in improvement of visual acuity from 6/12 to 6/6.
  4. This was the first time that we have tried macular laser treatment in such a case and the quick resolution of the patient's macular oedema and restoration of vision to 6/6 was in favor of our conclusion.
